Overwhelming Response to Final Message of Yad L'Achim's Legendary Leader

in his final days

Just a few weeks after the passing of Hagaon Harav Shalom Dov Lifschitz, zt"l, the legendary founder and chairman of Yad L'Achim, the organization distributed his "last will and testament:" a call to the religious public to wake up to the dangers of missionaries in Israel.

In an advertisement drafted by Rav Lifschitz with his last ounce of strength, he exhorts the religious public to act against the danger of shemad posed by missionary cults that lure Jews to Christianity.

"What have we done to bring an end to the missionary shemad that is carried out in full view, all across the country, without the government or the Knesset intervening," says the advertisement, headlined "What will we answer on the Day of Judgment?"

Referring to the ignorance of Judaism that plagues the Israeli public school system, Rav Lifschitz asks: "What have we done for the million Jewish children who learn in the state educational system and don't know the words of Shema Yisrael or understand its significance to our people?"

Rav Lifschitz was driven by a passionate concern for the spiritual fate of these children and led an uncompromising battle to get the Education Ministry and relevant bodies to give every Jewish child the opportunity to reclaim his heritage.

In a call that is signed "Awaken from your slumber," the public is called upon to do everything it can "to get legislation passed that will ban any and all missionary activity in Israel and put an end to the terrible campaign of shemad that is growing more and more powerful, to our great sorrow and pain."

He added that "acting in keeping with the areivus  - sense of solidarity – that each and every one of us was commanded at Sinai, we must instill faith in Hashem in every Jewish child."

Response to the advertisement has been overwhelming, as many Jews from around the country, and from across the religious spectrum, contacted the offices of Yad L'Achim to sign a petition calling for an amendment to the missionary law.

Others have asked to enlist in Yad L'Achim's varied activities on behalf of the Jewish people.
